Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine

Sports Medicine Program

When an injury sidelines the athlete in you, specialists at Temple's Sports Medicine Program help you get back to the top of your game. Our sports medicine specialists care for all injuries and conditions that can affect your ability to participate in sports or an active lifestyle. As the region's first sports medicine program, our team has led the way in helping injured athletes and weekend warriors of all levels recover and return to doing what they love, stronger than ever. With 3 locations and appointments within 24 hours, you can quickly get care close to home.

Leading-Edge Treatments for Injuries

From diagnosis through rehabilitation, our specialists treat injuries caused by all kinds of activities, from a hard hit to a twisting fall or miles of pounding the pavement. Surgery isn't necessarily the first step to recovery. Many injuries are managed with rest combined with non-surgical treatments. Our sports medicine team includes physicians trained in non-surgical treatment options, such as ultrasound-guided injections, physical therapy, and comprehensive concussion management.

When surgery is the best treatment option, our orthopaedic surgeons have advanced training and experience in a wide range of procedures.

Whether it’s a Tommy John surgery performed on the starting pitcher for a college baseball team, repairing an ACL tear on the volleyball team’s star hitter, or a cartilage restoration for the leading guard on the basketball court, our sports medicine team is focused on a recovery that helps you not only heal, but gain the knowledge and training to prevent future injuries.

A Team of Experts You Can Trust

For more than 40 years, active patients of all abilities, from professional athletes to weekend warriors, have trusted the experience of the Temple Sports Medicine Program. Our team of surgeons, primary care physicians and physical therapists work together to provide personalized care to meet your goals. But it's not just great care and results that have made our team a leader in the field. As part of an academic medical center, our specialists are also advancing the field through research and through training the next generation of sports medicine specialists.
